I feel like yesterday I was able to re-catch my mental pace to be good to myself, particularly on the healthy intake detail. Today I wanted to be sure to start the day off on the right foot, as we know, if you can win the morning, you win the day.
A 9:00am recap of my day so far gives me hope for the day and week to come.
- I woke up early and with it still dark and raining outside, and my husband watching the Winter Olympics at dawn, I got comfy, grabbed a coffee (no sugar!) and read in bed. I am so enjoying Anne Patchett’s Patron Saint of Liars, I feel a bit spoiled when I am reading a book I can’t put down.
- Then, got up for real and did the morning routine of getting my son ready and out the door while catching moments to stretch my body and warm up a bit before heading out and walking our dog once the schoolbus had gone.
- When I got back from our walk up and over the nearby forest I went to my office and got the Youtube video 8 min abs up and running and (finally!!) re-vived my daily habit of working my abs. I love the quirky kitch-ness of this video, they guy and his upbeat enthusiasm seem to get my day started off well. At the end he says “see you in 24 hours” and I’m like…OK.
So with this start as my base I will head into my day of Living Like Lindsey and eat well, move well and keep myself on the right track. My focus today is no sweets, I have plenty of good options ready at hand so…
No excuses = No sweets
